| Father Lu Ai often tells others how much he desires talents and how much he likes knowledgeable people. One person named Zhang Zhang heard that Lu Ai was so welcoming to the talents, so he came to Lu Guo from far away and asked to see Lu Ai. |
Zi Zhang has lived in Lu State for seven days, and he hasn't waited for the shadow of Lu Ai. It turned out that Lu Aigong said that he likes knowledgeable people just to be fashionable and to learn from other monarchs. He didn't take the matter of Zhang Zhang who came to see him for a long time and had forgotten it. Zi Zhang was very disappointed and very angry. He told a story to the driver of Lu Ai and asked the driver to tell the story to Lu Ai.
Then, Zi Zhang quietly left.
Finally, one day, Lu Ai remembered what Zhang Zi asked for, and he was going to ask his driver to invite Zi Zhang. The coachman said to Lu Ai, "He has already left."
Father Lu Ai didn't understand, he asked the driver, "Did he not come to me? Why did he leave again?"
Then, the driver told the story left by Zi Zhang to Lu Ai. That story goes like this:
There is a person named Ye Zigao who always brags how he likes dragons. He drew dragons on the hooks of the clothes, carved dragons on the wine set, and carved dragons everywhere in the bedrooms of his house. The real dragon in the sky knows that the leaves are so high that they like dragons very much. One day, True Dragon landed in Ye Zi's high house. He put his head into the window to visit, and dragged his tail on the hall. The leaf was so high, that the face changed its color, terrified, and ran back. Zhenlong felt inexplicable and disappointed. In fact, Ye Gong didn't really like dragons, he just liked them formally and verbally.
